The Importance of Legal Counsel

Even if you feel confident that you and your spouse have reached an agreement on all of the terms of your divorce, it is essential that you retain experienced legal counsel to assist you. There are many different issues you may not have considered that could affect your rights. Failing to properly deal with these issues now could lead to unnecessary legal entanglements in the future.

It is critical that the documents you file with the court clearly specify the nature of your agreement. Do you have a parenting time agreement that specifies how to treat birthdays, holidays, vacations and summer break? Have you clarified how you and your spouse will make decisions about education and other key issues affecting the welfare of your children? Have you determined how to handle the division of retirement accounts? What about your responsibility for marital debts?

These and other issues must be fully considered. Your filings with the court must clearly specify the nature of your agreement on such matters to avoid unnecessary problems. You must also fully understand the ramifications of your agreements.

Retaining an experienced divorce lawyer is the best way to ensure the protection of your rights. With more than 20 years of experience in divorce and family law matters, Rainer Steinhoff can provide the knowledgeable guidance you require.
